|These physical mementos of miniature human body organs are dedicated to all the human lives lost to COVID, most of whom's organ systems failed them. They are dedicated to the people that died without family around them because of COVID restrictions. They are dedicated to the loved ones of those lost to COVID. They are dedicated to the healthcare workers that tirelessly showed up to care for such patients, even in the face of fear and exhaustion, and also while working within overburdened healthcare systems. And, they are dedicated to the advances in medical care we've seen over the last 2 years (including vaccines), so that less people have had to suffer such severe consequences of a COVID19 infection.
